Khan began her singing career in 2017.[57] She starred as a rape victim in Shoaib Mansoor‘s social drama film Verna,[58][59][60] for which she earned a Lux Style Award for Best Actress in 2018.[61] The film, however received generally unfavorable reviews but her performance was praised.[62][63] In 2018, she starred in Meenu GaurFarjad Nabi‘s romantic comedy 7 Din Mohabbat In.[64][65] In addition, she is also filming for Bilal Lashari’s Maula Jatt 2,[66] and has also signed Asim Raza’s Parey Hat Luv for special appearance.[67]

Personal life[edit]

She has a younger brother, Hassaan Khan who is a journalist by profession.[68]

Khan met her to-be husband Ali Askari in 2006 in Los Angeles.[4][5] Some media reports say that she met him at Indus TV studios.[6] She married Askari in 2007[9][10] in a traditional Islamic wedding ceremony despite Khan’s father being against this marriage.[6] She gave birth to their son, who is named Azlan.[69][19][70] The couple divorced in 2015.[3][4]

Other work and media image[edit]
